Drawn by Nick Brennan, the strip Crazy for Daisy first appeared in Beano No.2865 as part of a competition in which readers could vote which 2 of 6 strips they wanted to keep in the comic. Crazy for Daisy along with Tim Traveller emerged as the winners.
The strip involved the besotted Ernest Valentine who was hopelessly in love with Daisy and his lame attempts at wooing her. Daisy however didn't share Ernests feelings and would always refuse his plea's to go out with him. This often ended violently either by Ernest's own bumbling ways or by some cunning plan by Daisy.
